Nothing too fancy here. Recycled pseudo-mahogany plywood (luan) from a kitchen remodel dumpster dive and new birch plywood boxes. Hung on the wall with cleats. Spent way too many hours fiddling with the arrangement and fabricating the tool holders. Now, almost everything pictured needs to be cleaned and/or sharpened and/or honed. This is about a quarter of my collection of planes, chisels, squares and more that I’ve accumulated from flea markets/auctions/garage sales/Christmas and/or inherited over the past thirty-five years though. So, there’s plenty more hand tools to get into working shape after I work through these (that were in decent working shape before being put in storage in October of 2010).

Nice cabinets and tool collection. From the first picture I wondered if that was really that many block planes on the top, and then I saw that it was. That will be a great way to get at your tools, and I’m sure all the time spent laying out the holders will be worth it. I especially like the holder for your router plane.
